This is one of the best schools I've ever seen!! The staff works together and is a close family. My children are excited to learn!!
My grandson has had three wonderful teachers at this school, the principal is a lovely caring lady , and my grandson LOVES school.. What else can ask for. He has learned so much!
I think that they have a few issues related to parent communication. I have no idea what is going on half the time. If I wasn't diligent I would really not know anything. My child is an excellent student but I still need feedback.
This is a wonderful school. The teachers are great and my children received an excellent education.
Both of my children attended this school. Overall I have been pleased with the instruction they have received. I would not rate them above any other elementary in the district, however. The school is overcrowded as people seem to think this school is the 'best' is the county.
Our child is 10 and is already talking about 'when I go to college'. I like to think that North Elementary is providing the foundation for her future not just in Okeechobee but outside of Okeechobee as well. I do believe that well rounded citizens begin as well rounded children who have a variety of experiences to learn that their little corner of the world is but part of the big picture and that there are unlimited opportunities waiting to be acted upon
I have a first grader at north elementary, and after kindergarten at an expensive private school, I had questions about what it would be like for us at a public school. I only wish we would've chosen north elementary from the beginning of my child's school career, because we couldn't be happier.I have found the entire staff to be open and very involved with the children as well as the parents. We parents have many opportunities to be involved, and it is obvious to my son and me that he is cared for as a unique individual.
